Projects per year
I joined the University in March 2015, and I’m currently a Lecturer in the Department of Management Science at Strathclyde Business School. My work focuses on decision and uncertainty analysis, including the structuring, elicitation, and validation of expert judgements. Much of my work is in the field of public health, including program evaluation, cost-effectiveness and benefit-cost analysis, and prioritisation. I am particularly interested in health evaluation in low- and mid-income countries, where data is often sparse so needs to be supplemented with expert judgement. I also have a stream of work relating to antimicrobial resistance, including projecting future resistance rates and supporting economic analysis and health technology assessment of new antibiotics. I have worked on projects with government, industry, and third sector organisations from around the world.
I have a PhD in Management Science from the University of Strathclyde, which focused on using expert judgement in the context of public health. I also have an MPP from the University of Chicago and a BA in political science and environmental studies from American University.
